Caring for an aging parent can be a joy and privilege, but it also can be challenging. ACAP provides information, resources, support and community for adult-children and others caring for aging loved ones.
Adult-children, typical front-line caregivers for their aging parents, often find themselves at a loss as to how to best care for and/or advocate for their loved ones. Many feel overwhelmed and isolated because of caregiving demands. And, juggling caregiving with work, family, community involvements and everything else in one's life makes it difficult to care for oneself or prepare for one's own future as an elder. ACAP (Adult Children of Aging Parents) offers meaningful assistance by providing information, resources, support and community for adult-children as they care for their aging parents and for themselves.
At its core, ACAP is an educational program, offering evidence-based information by respected experts. Since beginning in Hickory, NC, in 2012, ACAP has grown into three local-community chapters in NC and PA, providing free monthly educational programs and an annual conference. ACAP also records and distributes audio podcasts related to issues of aging and adult-child caregiving, conversational interviews with content experts. Podcasts are downloaded by caregivers across the globe. All ACAP programs are based on our nationally-validated and copyrighted curriculum and, although designed specifically for adult-child caregivers, ACAP programs are open to all.

If you would like to make your gift in honor or memory of a loved one, we will be happy to send you an acknowledgement that you may forward to your honoree or his/her family. If you work for a company that matches gifts, ACAPcommunity is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, so your gift may be matched.
